St. Regis Bora Bora Announces Partnership with MIKOH Swimwear

The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort is pleased to announce a partnership with MIKOH swimwear, a luxury swimwear line created by California based sisters Oleema and Kalani Miller.

The stunning landscapes of the St. Regis Bora Bora Resort were the backdrop and ideal location for the 2015 MIKOH campaign, a new collection titled South Pacific which was shot on property in June 2014.  The majority of the look book feature colors and designs inspired by the iconic Mt. Oteamau and Bora Bora landscape. The collection will be available in stores and online starting Spring 2015.

REGIS BORA BORA collection will be available for purchase at the Resort’s Bridal Boutique.  All of the designs in the select collection are familiar MIKOH silhouettes, coupled with the addition of delicate white lace, ideal for the tropical bride getting married on property, or the bride who wants to “wow” her partner on their honeymoon or romantic getaway to the St. Regis Bora Bora Resort.

“We specifically designed our swimsuits to be seamless and hardware free, perfect for a warm weather getaway to Bora Bora!” says co-founder Oleema Miller. “We are thrilled to work with such a well-known Resort like the St. Regis, and we know all the ladies (and men) will enjoy our swimwear.”

Prices start at $10 700 XPF. Share your pictures in a MIKOH suit with #MIKOHXSRBB.

St. Regis Bora Bora Resort Debuts Animal Accessory Line to Support Local Shelter

Committed to helping local dogs and cats in Bora Bora, The St. Regis Bora Bora, is launching the St. Regis Bora Bora Furry Friends Program. 

St. Regis Bora Bora Furry Friends is a collection of luxury stylish pet accessories available for purchase at the Resort. The entire collection was designed with Tahitian names in mind.

The St. Regis Bora Bora will donate a percentage of the sales from the accessories to the local shelter in Bora Bora, Animara, which was started by two local Polynesian’s Kiki and Fru. These donations will be used to educate and raise awareness of the stray dog population on the island and encourage local residents and visitors to adopt these homeless animals.  The Resort will also work with hotel guests who are interested in adopting an animal from the Bora Bora Shelter to take back home with them once they leave French Polynesia.

The Resort is committed to helping dogs and raising awareness of the homeless dog population in French Polynesia. The complete Furry Friends line will be available for purchase on property beginning Spring 2015.
